HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2009: This year, you approach life with renewed energy and a constantly transforming perspective. Opportunities definitely come through networking and key associates. If single, you’ll want to be careful about your choice of sweetie. If attached, you gain from weekends away, just the two of you. Leo is a soul mate.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Let your creativity emerge after a discussion with associates. You might feel as if you are in an all-or-nothing situation. Adapt your thinking, and you’ll find solutions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••• One cannot say you are lazy, but you might want to vanish or play it low-key for several reasons. By extracting yourself from a situation, you might view issues and projects without as much feedback.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Break past a restriction, and honor your objectives. Understanding could help illuminate a problem and display another perspective and solution.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) •••• You discover what is going on with an investment. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. One-on-one relating elicits many strong feelings. These feelings could be more insightful than usual.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• At best, you can be a force who’s hard not to deal with. Your imposing will and high charisma blend, making you a formidable figure.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• Don’t make a big decision without necessary information. If you slow down the process, the possibility for more information will emerge. You are on top of your game and can afford to hold on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) •••• Emphasis does make a big difference, and others respond when you point to key directives. You are far more upbeat when with groups.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) •••• Take a stand, and others will respond. If you detach, look at what’s happening behind the scenes. Revel in the moment, as you gain understanding.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Break past rigid thinking. Until now your ideas have been close to impossible to understand. Once you understand the manner in which you filter information, you can make an adjustment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Deal with someone on an individual level. Your ability to move in a new direction opens up possibilities. Someone is clearly “soft” on you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Your ability to move a project past another’s critical insight is helpful. Still, it would serve you well to get past an immediate issue and gather more information.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ••• Toss yourself into work. You are more entrenched than you have been in the past. Sort through your emotions perhaps at another time, as you could become quite distracted.
